Colors of Life

soaked in sepia

mass of monochrome

listless grays

between black and white

these exanimate days


now to seek splashes

of the colors of life

to signal that someone

inhabits these spans

from dusk to dawn

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.
